I'll wait to see another pics of them, but they look really bad in these oficial pics :?

Not great (especially if it's two stands for $15) but a slight bit better than flight stands 1.0...

I'm going to order a couple a boxes next week regardless but if Daniel, Noisy, Pixel-Dan or some of the other reviewers don't get a review up by the time I get mine I'll try to put one together as quickly as I can.

They look really opaque in that photo. I hope they are in fact clear plastic.

I'll buy a set next time time I make a purchase, which would be Huntress, I suppose.

I'm sure the photo is making them much more noticeable than the final ones which will be more clear plastic. Looks like a decent design to me, with multiple options for display. The price is a bit high, but I'm honestly surprised they are developing any more stands at all!

I'm betting that they're the same type/opacity of plastic as the 1.0 stands.

The design makes any display option ABOUT the stand. These things should be inconspicuous, and showcase the figure. They look like those robotic arms that make cars. And I doubt they'll be any more transparent. The clearer the plastic, the more brittle, and that becomes a safety hazard.

They're still smaller and less conspicuous than those giant discs that were 1.0 and I can't imagine anyone actually displaying them with the extra waist clips stored on them.

I wonder why they don't use Lexan or something similar for these things, that stuff just bends/crushes instead of breaking...

These things look pretty cool even though they're kind of exensive. If anyone is buying new ones, I will gladly buy your old ones, Pm me please :) But yes, these look pretty darn cool, especially now that they have the option to go even higher *Ahem* (Superman, Wonder Woman)

Well, I won't be doing any flight stand review anytime soon. A bit miffed that they weren't on the early access page as they'd said that they would be. Placed my order for a Man-at-Arms for a friend and got out because I don't expect MaA to last long and they stands should be around the next time I place an order which I'm guessing will be the Ecto-Goggles.

(BTW, I don't know if they'd have stopped the order somewhere along the way, but I managed to get 40 MaA in my cart and into the checkout process with no problem just now. Almost wish I'd had an extra $1,500 just burning a hole to see if the order would've gone through...)

That's odd. They were on the early access page when I looked at it.

Yeah, they were there later in the day, but weren't for the first couple of hours (there were two of us that made posts about it over on the Matty forums). If I could've know MaA would've lasted through the whole EA I would've waited longer, but I really thought he'd go quickly this last time.
